Mom•Logic: What happened?
Kenya: My dad was watching Kalli in the yard. I had just strapped my baby in the car. I needed to run inside to change clothes, so I left the van running with the air-conditioner on. I left the front door open, so my dad could see the baby, and I pulled the van right up to my dad. I'm guessing I didn't put the van in park all the way, the gear must have been in between park and reverse.
Kalli was standing by the van's open front door. Then I heard the engine rev. I turned and looked. The door knocked Kalli down, and then the van ran over her. The left front tire went from her right shoulder down across her sternum, and off her leg.My dad was holding Kalli and I just yanked her away from him. She wasn't crying or screaming, just whimpering a little. I ran through the house to get the phone and call 911.
My husband and I have a 4-year-old English bulldog named George. There is also a stray dog that visits our property. Both dogs love taking rides in the car, and they were in the yard with us. The stray jumped into the front seat and hit the accelerator. The car must have gotten knocked out of park, and it took off.
Mom•Logic: What were Kalli's injuries?
Kenya: There were no broken bones and no internal bleeding. Kalli had bruised lungs. She stayed overnight in ICU for observation and has been back to normal since.
I begged God to help Kalli, and to let her be okay. If it hadn't been for the prayers, the outcome would have been different. I give him the glory and praise for that. It was a miracle, and nothing less.
